Listed after the jump are a couple of results from recent mock drafts. I still don't understand how their can be so many "versions" of a mock draft, but this week SB Nation has the Browns taking DT Marcell Dareus. I'm beginning to each candidate for the Browns will be listed in a different mock draft, just so the claim can be made that it was right at some point.
Here are the top ten picks from three mock drafts:
|Mike Lombardi||Sam Wyche||SB Nation|
|1.) CAR||Gabbert||Gabbert||C. Newton|
|3.) BUF||Bowers||M. Dareus||Bowers|
|4.) CIN||Cam Newton||N. Fairley||Gabbert|
|5.) ARI||Peterson||Von Miller||Von Miller|
|6.) CLE||AJ Green||AJ Green||M. Dareus|
|7.) SF||Von Miller||Peterson||AJ Green|
|9.) DAL||M. Dareus||A. Castonzo||Amukamara|
|10.) WAS||A. Smith||A. Smith||J.J. Watt|
And here is why Brian Galliford from SB Nation has the Browns going with Dareus:
6. Cleveland Browns: Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama. Moving back to the 4-3 under defensive coordinator Dick Jauron, the Browns need to re-tool their defensive front seven. They could certainly take a pass rusher to begin that process, but after a strong Combine showing, Dareus might be too good to pass up here.
